FamilyLife Blended® Minute
Various Love Motivations
How do you form a loving relationship with someone who isn't motivated to love you?
About the Guest
That's one blended family challenge discussed by Dr. Gary Chapman and me in our book Building Love Together in Blended Families. Don't get me wrong, sometimes everyone in a stepfamily is equally motivated toward loving like family, but not always. Parents are generally very motivated, but kids vary. If you're a highly motivated person you can draw inspiration from God-who loves everyone despite many being distracted or unmotivated to love him. There are no guarantees. Just keep loving.
